My wife and I recently visited Beijing for the first time ever for 3 days and reached out to Alvin to use him as our guide. This was one of the best decisions that we made on this trip. He was very responsive to our initial inquiries, gave us great counsel on how to get to our hotel and arranged for a car to pick us up from the airport. Alvin had a great schedule mapped out for us and we enjoyed his knowledge, commentary and tit-bits about Chinese history and events. More than his knowledge was his concern for our well being and pointing out ways where we could be more cost effective in our purchases. He has incredible energy and integrity....would not let us pay for his meals or drinks!!
I would gladly recommend Alvin for all those who need a guide/driver in Beijing, and would use him again if the need arose.
Thank you for all that you did, Alvin! The trip to the great wall was just GREAT:)
